The VTAP50 from Dot Origin can selectively read and decrypt NFC pass data from iPhone or Android devices, and transfer this data to a connected system. It can also read unique IDs and secure encoded data from many RFID and NFC cards and tags, including MIFARE Classic and DESFire.
 
VTAP50 is a streamlined version of the VTAP100 from Dot Origin, for integration into your own enclosure or kiosk. This small form factor reader can be used in many environments, including retail loyalty, cashless payment, gym check-in, and sports ticketing. The VTAP50 remains logically separate from any payment mechanism. This simplifies data and security considerations, and the human interaction. It does not support EMV payments, but can be used for stored value and points redemption applications.
 
VTAP50 has been designed to support a smooth transition from plastic to mobile NFC passes so, alongside mobile passes, the VTAP50 will also read popular contactless RFID or NFC smartcards and tags, to support mixed-use applications. It is fully certified by both Apple and Google to work with their respective VAS and Smart Tap protocols, supporting automatic pass selection on iOS, as well as on-board decryption.
 
A USB connection from any PC is used to configure the VTAP50, by editing simple text files. Keys can be easily updated but cannot be extracted from the device. The configuration can be locked, so that the device is password protected or read-only in general use.
 
The VTAP50-OEM can output pass data over USB in the same way as a mag-stripe, barcode or QR code scanner. This can be a keyboard emulation or over a virtual COM port on the USB interface, or a serial RS232 interface can be enabled, for more advanced command, data transfer and logging purposes. This makes it possible to add the VTAP50 to existing systems without software changes, to update an established card or ticket experience, to one where passes are wholly electronic.
 
The VTAP50-OEM is ready for you to integrate into your own housing. It comes without cables, but includes a micro-USB connector on board as well as a standard 8 pin 2mm pitch connector with both USB and serial RS-232 connections.
 
This is all you need to get started with mobile NFC pass reading, as it includes access to create demonstration mobile passes, so that you can test your application. For production purposes you will need to use a third-party pass provider, or integrate directly with Apple and Google.
 
The larger VTAP100 is available in a neat case for desktop or wall mounting, either as a VTAP100-USB or as VTAP100-PAC-W which has a Wiegand interface for access control and turnstiles. Please contact us to discuss availability of these and other interface options.
